Title Envisioning NATO Partnership Presence in Afghanistan from 2014 to 2020.
Publication Date May 2012
Media Count 33p
Personal Author J. D. Kuenzli
Abstract Following the agreement to withdraw combat forces from Afghanistan in 2014, efforts continue to build competent Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) and transition provincial security to the ANSF. Now is the time, with transition operations underway, for NATO leadership to determine what it will commit to Afghanistan as part of its Strategic Partnership Declaration after 2014. Knowing that any NATO commitment must be agreed upon by all 28 member nations, each country's contribution must be able to withstand critical scrutiny over the expected costs, political support, consequential risks, and the over-arching idea of maintaining 'good membership status' with the United States and the rest of the alliance. This study will present three options for NATO to pursue to meet its commitments to the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA), and to continue to meet the international goal of creating a secure Afghanistan that denies a safe haven to terrorists.
